Torshov Sword , scabbard , practical blunt B


Our battle-ready reconstruction of this Viking Sword is based on a find in Torshov (Gjerdrum) in southern

Norway. The hilt is classified as type H, which was very common between 800 - 950 AD. Many finds of

similar hilt fittings, like guards and pommels evidence the popularity of this style.


This blunt early medieval sword is forged by hands. Guard and pommel are made of heat-treated malleable

cast iron. The spring steel blade is oil-tempered up to 48-50° Rockwell, forged to the hilt and peened with the

pommel. The wooden gip is wrapped with leather string. The blade has got a distinctive fuller which offers both

flexibility and a lesser weight. The edges of this sword are blunt and the tip is rounded for safety.

The sword comes with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard.
